PUE Students Hold Mock Election

The Quest Classes at PUE hosted a school-wide Presidential Mock Election on Thursday, October 27th. The Promote the Vote campaign is sponsored by the MS Secretary of State’s office and allows students from school districts all across MS to participate.  Prior to voting, the PUE students were shown a bulletin board display with Thinking Maps which compared and contrasted the two candidates and presented information about past elections and presidents. Donald Trump received 80 percent of the vote. In the statewide election, more than 28,300 Mississippi students voted. Donald Trump received 49.2 percent of the vote while Hillary Clinton received 42 percent. Our PUE students proudly displayed their “I Voted” stickers after casting their votes.  Be sure to exercise your right to do the same on Tuesday, November 8th.
